1200 GS. Icon meets progress, perfection meets passion. The R 1200 GS is THE GS. This model founded the dual-sport motorcycle segment – and is still leading it confidently today. The versatile road performance and comfort in any terrain, combined with the legendary robustness and the expertise from over 36 years of GS development result in a motorcycle that does not shy away from competitors.

The wet clutch with anti-hopping function and the electronic throttle facilitate a fine dosage of power. Why not try it out on a test ride?

Personalization – irreplaceable. One thing always remains the same: the R 1200 GS is robust, dynamic and full of character. New paint finishes and high-quality surfaces also highlight the striking GS design. And this is a good thing. But whether it's elegant tank trims, front wheel spray protection, GS moldings or new frame and body colors – the R 1200 GS has never been as diverse as this. The 2017 model adds new styles and package options. The Exclusive style adds visual highlights and places the focus on a confident appearance and touring with high-quality materials and details. The Rallye style does exactly what you would expect, and ambitious off-road riders will be very pleased.
